I've mostly been enjoying the hell out of it, with perhaps the exception of having to find Solar Panels.


Go to the kelp forest near the crashed spaceship's engines. You'll need a rad-suit first, but I found that lots of Solar Panel and Sea Glide modules spawn there.

That sounds fantastic once it gets there. RIght now, my issue is the cyclops. The idea behind it seems awesome. The idea of it recharging your seamoth also sounds awesome. The idea you can't park it next to some power units to recharge bothers me to no end. I do hope respawning of materials comes in eventually. Also, a better weapon than a survival knife would be amazing as well.

The devs are working on a docking extension for your base where the Cyclops can park and get recharged. Also, resources definitely respawn. I've found it's best to maintain a few base sites and cycle between them as you work on projects.

So here's a question: If you could choose any one material in the game to find a crate absolutely full of, what would it be?

Glass. Scrounging for quartz when you have a big construction project in mind can be a total drag.

The survival mechanics add a purpose to bases and the cyclops and provides a rhythm to the game of "go out, explore, get stuff, oh no out of water time to go back to base". A big issue I always had with minecraft is that once you had a hollow 5x5x5 cube, a crafting station and a furnace your were set. Anything else you built was functionally useless and felt unsatisfying due to it.

On the flipside stuff like reefback babies are awkward fuel because even if it's worth thousands, It's a 4x4 object. so you can only put one in at a time, and have to wait until it runs out of power (and the air turns off if that's your sole source) before you can put in so much as a single mushroom.

What? You monster

I lost my Hardcore save in the Lost River, consequence of not realizing the poison pools are much more deadly than I remembered.

Lesson Learned, use grav traps.

Yeah I have a prawn permanently stuck inside one of the pools because I decided to get out and scan something.

What else is out there like this? The handcrafted map is so great compared to procedural stuff for a change.

Subnautica reminds me of Skyrim more than anything else in terms of interesting crafted landscape.
